The facility is inclusive and inspires and promotes learning, creativity and participation through a variety of weekly groups and events throughout the year.

We have regular weekly groups and clubs who between them cater for all ages and abilities. These groups vary from health and exercise, dance, under 5’s, drama, martial arts, educational and arts and crafts. Please see further details of the many activities we host on this website.

Our History

Est. 1960s

Established in the mid 1960's the centre has been home to a variety of groups and activities.

Springwell Village Hall Association was established in July 1965 and the Constitution was adopted in September 1965. The Village Hall is at the heart of the Springwell Village, which was a historical pit village. The association adopted a new constitution in July 2009 and the name was changed to Springwell Village Community Venue.

The building itself is owned by Sunderland City Council and a 25 year lease was signed in 2007.

Over the past ten years the building has undergone a few changes and been made more user friendly and modern, thanks to capital grant funding from The Strategic Initiatives Budget, Biffa Award and Asda Foundation.
